Fall Cooking: Recipes

I had a lot of veggies sitting on my counter.  I have been slacking with keeping up with cooking all of my CSA.  I think it's because we don't get much fruit any more, other than apples, so I can only cook so many squash and potatoes!  Either way, I had to use them up.

I ended up making this for dinner on Sunday. That is, after my girl Alison texted me that she made an amazing Goat Cheese Butternut squash pasta.  I can't have goat cheese until after baby, but since I had already roasted some squash earlier in the day, I took to google.

Voila:

Roasted Butternut Squash and Bacon Pasta

Brooke didn't seem too thrilled.  Perhaps it was too fancy haha!  Joe loved it and helped himself to seconds.  We both thought the flavors blended nicely; the sweet from the squash, salty from the bacon, rosemary adds that extra layer of deliciousness.


With my abundance of potatoes, I wrapped a few in foil and threw them in the crockpot. Aka #jackpot  Super simple and such an easy way to cook these guys!!

Baked Potatoes in a Crockpot

How handy would this be if you wanted to do a baked potato bar at a party?  You could have cheese, chives, greek yogurt (tastes just like sour cream) salt/pepper, chili.  Just a thought!


I don't even know how long I put them in for…it was probably 4 hours or so! I just checked them twice, once they were fork tender, they were done!

Brooke and Joe approved. #winning

What warm and hearty foods are you serving up these chilly days and nights?
